Blue Dress

I made this for this week's Lessismore challenge the LIMettes have a recipe which is - Off Centre. I would also like to enter it for: Crafty creations pril 2011 Challenge #116- White Space  , Pile it on challenge :More than one Ribbon

Chrissie and Mandy have asked for cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance...... this has taken me ALL DAY but I am having a 'Duvet Day' today as I rather overdid it in the garden yesterday and the Fibro has caught up with me today!

I saw the image on paddington doo's blog and instantly fell in love with it so downloaded it from Coloured with paint shop pro and Promarkers and printed twice, cut out and layered for depth.  I also Matted onto navy cardstock and cut using my Woodware trimmer.
Papermania cardstock and 2 ribbon / trims. Glossy accents.
Friskars stamp (it is for their roller system but works fine on a block and was only EUR3.95 Bargain!
Stamped and embossed with HeroArts clear powder, (the embossing does not show up well) SComputer generated sentiment and stampin! up scalloped oval punch. Phew!
